Custom Hearing Protection for Duck Hunting Waterfowl CustomShield
$1,099.00 / Pair Why the price?
TETRA devices use a similar chip and digital noise reduction that you would pay $5,000 for in hearing aids. TETRA devices give you a premium hearing experience, but feel like wearing nothing at all.
Advanced hearing devices optimized for most the most critical sounds for the waterfowl hunter while providing hearing protection from loud calling and gunshots. Custom molded for the most personalized fit possible.
Waterfowl programming also available on Multi-Pursuit CustomShield.
In case there is any confusion, let’s set the record straight: duck hunting with unprotected ears causes hearing loss. As hearing doctors at TETRA, we see what years of waterfowl hunting does to our patients. Recent studies show that people with hearing loss are more likely to develop dementia, Alzheimers and other chronic health problems.* Hearing loss impacts overall health and wellness, and ruins the hunting experience.
So why do 86% of hunters NOT use hearing protection? Previous products have distorted the sound of the call, either over-amplified everything or blocked out your surroundings, and simply just weren’t comfortable. We solved those problems with the TETRA Shield Series. Using our patent-pending Specialized Target Optimization™ (STO) voices and calling are clear and natural while AlphaShield Compression reduces loud sounds to safe levels.
Our custom products provide the most personalized fit and protection available.
TETRA isn’t just hearing protection, it’s hearing perfection.

TETRA products instantly shut down and instantly recover for sudden loud noises, like gunshots, providing the wearer full protection at the very moment it’s needed. For more sustained loud inputs, like loud calling, AlphaShield Compression™ limits the overall output to a safe level, then returns to normal amplification once the loud input has stopped. Never miss a sound you want to hear, and protect your hearing for life.
ClearComm™ is our proprietary algorithm that accentuates human speech while minimizing noises and distractions that occur outside of the frequency range of human voices. ClearComm is useful for better understanding speech and whispers of hunting partners, hearing speech on the range, as well as in other daily activities that require better hearing.

Hearing and the Brain
Research at Johns Hopkins University suggests that more hearing loss increases the risk of dementia. In one study, people with hearing loss were 24% more likely to have Alzheimer’s.*
With hearing loss, our brains have to work much harder to make sense of what is being said, and even harder to filter out speech from unwanted background noise. Simply trying to understand conversations requires more mental energy and concentration.
If basic conversations take up most of our mental energy, there is less opportunity for our brains to sort out and store other information.
At TETRA, our goal is to minimize hearing loss for hunters and shooters, because research shows if we reduce hearing loss, we can also reduce the chance of getting dementia and Alzheimer’s.

The sound is really unbalanced and harsh on the ears. This has taken quite a while to get used to. They pick up everything, including the back of my jacket, the brush of the blind, etc. My right ear device falls out each time I shoot, which I have not figured out how to remedy. This make me very nervous about hunting in water. How unfortunate that I am a duck hunter. Not very impressed and I'm wondering why I spent so much money. Where are those foam plugs?
Experience was great. I asked a lot of questions and they answered all of them. The only complaint I have if the on/off volume switch. It is very easy to bump that switch turn the units on which will run the battery down.
Great item! I’ve used them for trap shooting only but so far I’m very pleased with them. I put them in when arriving at the range and am protected from the numerous gun shots, but better yet I can hear other people talking and I can carry on a conversation while protecting my hearing. Another month and I’ll test them out on some teal hunting trips. I’m very sure they’re going to work out great! Thanks for a great product!
Three times turkey hunting
I am impressed! I honestly didn't know what to expect as the only thing I had ever used was foam plugs or low quality electronic muffs, but the Tetras are fantastic. At times I actually questioned if I had them in because everything sounded so...normal. I could hear duck quacks and whistles and whistling wings as good as or better than without them with hardly any wind noise. I am definitely a believer and very happy I made the jump.
